The main Body is 2040 extruded aluminum and 2020 extruded aluminum. All the T-nuts and braces are from Openbuilds. the Z-axis is 20mm linear rails and 16mm leadscrew. the x and y axis are going to be 8mm linear rails from my old reprap. all the stepper motors except the Z are NEMA 17 from my old reprap. the Z axis stepper is a NEMA 23 that was a spare I ordered for my CNC machine.

The original plan was to build a 3d printer with a 1200x1200 build platform with a 600mm build height. I was having issues getting ahold of a large enough borosilicate glass plate for the build so I decided to go for build height. I plan on using a smoothieboard for the controller. The build has currently slowed down. I was removing a broken drillbit from the linear rail mount, and it shattered and took out my eye. I am doing what I can when I can focus my eyes long enough for the build.

Reason for this BuildI needed a large build volume 3d printer. Everything on the market was overpriced or did not have any of the features I want.
Inspired byI have built a few 3d printer kits, laser engraver, and CNC kits in the past. I decided to design my own system that has all the features and build volume that I want.
